Mark Your Calendars: Idolator Is Live-Blogging The Grammys This Sunday

noah | February 8, 2008 4:30 am

Yes, that’s right–Sunday at 7:30 p.m. ET is when our live coverage of the Grammys, which will be filled with the walking dead and the incredibly awkward, begins. It’ll be my first liveblog from my four-person orange couch! Here’s the nominee list, so you can read up on who’s in, who’s out, and who’s up for Best Polka Album. And to get you even more excited for Sunday, here are a few final news items on the show, presented in handy bullet form:

Jimmy Jam is reuniting with The Time for their performance with Rihanna on Sunday night. And the group has apparently mended fences with Prince, for those of you who want to taunt yourself with the possibility of the Purple One returning to the small screen.

Kanye West is planning on paying tribute to his mom during his just-announced set.

John Mayer is playing too! Please God I hope he’s not going to dress up like Borat.

• There’s a company out there that’s trying to scam people by selling fake tickets to the Grammys. Wouldn’t fake tickets to the Hannah Montana movie have been a more profitable enterprise?

• Sasha Frere-Jones thinks Soulja Boy was robbed when it came to Grammy nominations. Tell it to Mims, dude.
